Hehehe, not at all ;).

I have always been baffled as to why harlan constantly dismissed VS as overkill... It all makes sense now ;).
I think he only suggests that it's overkill when used with full security suites like Kaspersky, Bitdefender which are very capable themselves alone. Kaspersky more so as it has its wonderful Application Control. If someone use VS with combination with something like Windows Defender only then he doesn't say it's overkill. Some users often go even further by combining WD+Comodo FW+VS+Osarmor which is certainly overkill.

This might not always be the case, but either way, it genuinely cracks me up every time ;). I am just happy that harlan is going to evaluate different application control tech to see if perhaps one offers additional features and mitigations that are beneficial to the end user, and potentially base his future recommendations on his findings.
